March 17th - 22th 2020, St. Jakobshalle Basel

The 30th edition of the Yonex Swiss Open was actually under a very good star. Thanks to the upcoming Olympic Games and probably also because of the excellently organized World Championship 2019, the YSO had a spectacular field of participants. More than 380 athletes* from 51 nations had registered, including stars such as Shi Yuqi, Lin Dan, Anthony Ginting and Jonatan Christie, Carolina Marin, Saina Nehwal, Mia Blichfeldt and of course Sabrina Jaquet. Unfortunately, the world federation announced on Friday 13 March that all international tournaments will be suspended until further notice. The Yonex Swiss Open is the first tournament to be affected by this measure.

We hope to welcome you all back to Basel next year, we are already looking forward to making up for the anniversary event.
